In an attempt to retain staff, IT major Infosys has launched a new internal digital platform named ”Compass”, that will facilitate employees to change their job profile to explore newer opportunities within the organization.
Through “Compass” employees of Infosys, who are looking for a change from their existing positions can now opt to work in different positions within the organization. Instead of looking outside for a job change, ‘Compass’ allows the employees to mobilize available opportunities on career growth, learning and networks without having to exiting the company.With an increased focus on using technology to improve the experience of employees, Infosys has been at the forefront of a slew of initiatives to help employees be more productive by using available technologies.
Employees who want a change from their current job profile or posting can now log on to Compass, and view a curated list of opportunities based on their skills and interests. Employees can create a humanized profile to showcase their professional achievements. Besides, video CVs, endorsements, blogs and badges can also be shared through “Compass”. The platform can be used for networking with like-minded people, allowing employees to leverage existing expertise and experiences within the organisation. Infoscians can also find learning opportunities — both training and experience-based — and make informed choices based on actual experience feedback, as well as get a view of the trends in skills and domains within the organisation.
The platform is a self-service portal which empowers employees to design their own journey within the organisation by enabling them with the right information, support structure and access. Besides, the focus on the digital medium has also helped Infosys to move its entire feedback mechanism online to make it more quick and instant.
